St Salvator’s Hall and Gannochy House
St Salvator’s Hall, affectionately known by its residents as ‘Sallies’, is a traditional hall of residence situated in a central, but quiet, location next to the Quadrangle. Gannochy House is a more modern annexe of St Salvator’s Hall and has all the old traditions of Sallies along with the modern feel.
Younger Hall refurbishment works June 2019 to May 2021
Residents of St Salvator's Hall and Gannochy are advised to expect limited noise and inconvenience, due to refurbishment works taking place at Younger Hall which aims to enhance the St Andrews student experience for generations to come. Access to the buildings will be maintained throughout the project but may follow different routes to normal.
The whole St Andrews community benefits from the University's vibrant music tradition that began with the choristers of St Salvator's Chapel more than six centuries ago. Today, the University supports a thriving culture of performing groups across a range of musical genres, and students can opt to study music modules ranging from opera to electronic music.
